Restoration of epicardial blood flow is not necessarily associated with microvascular and tissue perfusion. The mechanisms responsib- le for no-reflow are uncertain and prevailing mechanism operating in the individual patient may also differ. Restoration of perfusion at the tissue level is expected to have beneficial effects on left ventricular function. Therapeutic approach to such a phenomenon requires knowledge of mechanisms, methods of diagnosis and response to treatment modalities.
